  • You could argue that this is where the west was won. A ton of history that you learn on the 1.5 mile hike. Unfortunately, the fort itself isn't too much to look as most of it was torn down shortly after closing.
  • Very nice NPS Site. The hike there and back is the highlight. Loved the history, ruins and solitude. The ranger at the visitors center was full of knowledge and very enthusiastic. This is a must do if your up to the hike!
  • So much history in this area. The 1 1/2 mile hike to the visitor's center is well worth it. The park rangers are very knowledgeable and friendly.
  • The trail was enjoyed as there were a number of sites that it went past, each with a historical description.
  • Be prepared for a hike. But, it's only about a mile and a half.
